Victim Crime Survey- by Ann Young

I carried out a self- report victim survey.  The questions that i asked included whether the participants in the survey experienced crime such as vandalism, robbery, burglary, bullying and cyber bullying, being mis-sold products, fraud, hate crime, and being threatened with a weapon. I also asked whether they were victims of crime more serious to the others listed.My results are shown in the table below.

Questions Yes No
Have you ever been a victim of vandalism? 0 5
Have you ever been a victim of a robbery? 0 5
Have you ever experienced bullying? 3 2
Have you ever experienced cyber bullying? 2 3
Have you ever been mis-sold products? 1 4
Have you ever been a victim of fraud? 0 5
Have you ever been a victim of hate crime? 0 5
Have you ever experienced burglary or housebreaking? 2 5
Have you ever been threatened with a weapon? 0 5
Have you ever experienced a crime that you consider to be more serious offenses than the ones listed above? 1 5

We also asked for age, gender and race. All the participants were white British females and 4/5 of them were 17 years old ( the other was 16 years old). To improve this survey i would ask a wider range of people to get more representative results  and also ask a wider age range if possible such as the A2 pupils and maybe teachers.
